How to Play Speed Charades
Speed charades moves fast and works well when acting out words or short phrases – like these cool dance moves!
Using a time limit, players work in teams to get as many points as possible before times up.
Get ready by dividing players into two teams and deciding which order team members will play in.
Then agree a time limit – limits may vary according to the age of players but less time makes things more fun and competitive. Two minutes per team is a great place to start.
Place printed charades cards face down in a pile on the table.
To begin play, set the timer for agreed time limit with team one ready to play.
Once the timer starts, the first team member jumps up, takes the first charades card from the pile and acts out the prompt as per regular Charades but as quickly as they can (our How to Play Charades instructions are included in the download if you need a refresher on the regular rules). Team members try to guess the prompt. Once successful, the team scores a point and the first player sits down. The next team member jumps up, takes the next charades card from the pile and the process repeats. Play continues in this manner until the timer sounds. The team’s score is the number of successful prompts solved within the time period.
Then it’s time for the second team to attempt to better team one’s score.
Play can continue for as many rounds as you like. The team with the most points at the end of time is the winning team.
